Drug possession is the most common crime in America, affecting everyone from teenagers to senior citizens and all walks of life. There are over 1.25 million arrests each year for possession, one of every nine arrests. In a recently released report from Human Rights Watch, that comes to an arrest every 25 seconds.

In recent years, many states have decriminalized recreational marijuana usage. Pennsylvania is currently adopting procedures for medicinal marijuana, which is also reflective of changing attitudes.
